My Janome Horizon Memory Craft 9400 Sewing Machine.
Yes we have had a rocky relationship. But it is acting great currently and overall I am happy with it. Plus that throat space is the best.
Making Book Quilts.
This is the 2nd full book quilt I have made along with a handful of blocks for a 3rd, and some random blocks for pillows etc.. The Pattern is Tall Tales by Kate Basti and is a super easy foundation paper piece pattern. I enlarged the original block 200% to make my blocks bigger.
Quilting on my Longarm.
I purchased a The Grace Company Qzone Queen quilting frame and Qnique 15R this summer. It has been a fun new skill to learn and explore and I am getting all those old quilt tops quilted. I also recommend Schmetz Ball point needles, glide thread, and Christina Cameli (a few scraps) youtube videos.
American Girl Dolls.
My daughter and I love American Girl Dolls. We like to make DIY’s together, sew clothes, decorate rooms, and set up scenes. It’s a fun activity for any age and all the miniature size things make me so happy.
Seeing all the quilts you guys make with my patterns.
Seriously though. Everytime I check any of my pattern hashtags and there are new quilts made by you all.. or I get tagged in a post. Ugh!!! It’s the best. This one is the Free WASH YOUR PAWS Quilt available here on the blog in the patterns and tutorial sections.
Whatever it is a home or office for a client, a friend, or my own I just love all things Interior design. I have a degree in Interior Design and work on select projects during the year that are fun and help me curb the need to design spaces. Check out my Kristin Rauch Interiors Instagram for snippets of those projects.
These are just a few of my favorite things.
